No secret I love the SF graffiti walls, they’re sick. I’d driven by this area, the Alemany exit off 280, a bunch of times before and just had to shoot here. However, it was one of the nastiest, sketchiest, piss-soaked alleys I’d ever shot in. There were all kinds of junkies and winos wandering around, broken glass, and who knows what lingering in the area. But it was worth it, shots were good and nobody heisted my camera gear. Got to ride yesterday over in Santa Cruz with filmmaker John Vernor. It was great, the trails were just flat out fun and the mtb scene over there is singular – beers, BB guns, tree(s), and every kind of bizarro mtb rig known to man. All in a couple hours. Oh, and there’s an In-n-Out burger across the parking lot from my hotel, how evil is that?
